April Snow

It started snowing this afternoon. I know it won't last but it's a bit disheartening to look out the window and see that white stuff coming down in April. I hope by the time I get up in the morning, it will all have melted away!

Since I can't show my exchange stitching and I've not done any more work on Storey Keeper this week, here is a photo of one of the lovely pillow covers that a friend brought back for me from India. He took his family back to visit and they did the tourist thing by going to Jaipur. It's the handi-craft capital of India as he told me and these pillows are just gorgeous aren't they? The fabric is silk and the stitching is gold - just lovely. They match the colors in my living room nicely so I just need to get the right size pillow inserts and I will keep them on my couch.

O-h-h-h...that pillow top is wonderful! Lucky you!

It's cold in NY...we wake up to a dusting every morning and I am still wearing my winter jacket (sigh)...
